QUAKE’s simple, dependable, feature rich API gives users unprecedented flexibility to incorporate tracking and asset management features in a broad range of applications without needing extensive programing knowledge. Applications for remote tracking, monitoring and controlling assets are no longer limited by technology, but only by imagination.
